Singapore Hypocritical? Never!

OK maybe this once...

“Singapore is in danger of appearing hypocritical as it promotes its commitment to sustainability while simultaneously driving demand in an industry that is wreaking havoc on Cambodia’s coastal ecosystems,” said George Boden of Global Witness. “Global Witness has repeatedly asked Singapore to regulate its sand trade to prevent an ecological disaster. We hoped to see action ahead of the summit, but nothing appears to have changed.”

One wonders who stands to gain from all these sand imports required to feed the immense need for concrete in the hyper-manic 40 storey apartment-block building frenzy that has been going on here for the past two/three years?
